Since “Willy” is so versatile and can be flavored with fruits and essences, we add a touch of vanilla extract to compliment the sweet nuttiness. Also good mixed with Captain Stout, a blend we call “The Captain and Vanil.”

Dogbrick (11513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Vanilla and malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of sweet vanilla, malt and wheat. The finish is sweet vanilla cream soda aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ferris (12747) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft - Vanilla and wheat. Pale clear yellow with a thin head. Huge vanilla and a wheat finish. Although they warn you this is soda like, it is hard to believe. Light, refreshing and fun but not beer. I would still drink it anyways.

Pours straw like color with thin off white head. Aroma that is very reminiscent of creme soda. Tastes much of the same plus mild bread and yeast.

Tap at Alpine. Aroma: definitely focused on vanilla, some light wheat malts, bread and some sweetness, more vanilla, really smells like cream soda. Appearance: pours straw colored, hazy with a white head, average retention and just a bit of lacing. Taste: lots of vanilla, cracker and light malts, vanilla gives the perception of sweetness but it’s certainly not overpowering, almost no bitterness. Palate: light body, medium-high carbonation, quite soda-like. Overall: the balance is really not that great - a bit one-dimensional on the vanilla, but I’m a fan of cream soda, and this is basically that with some wheat and alcohol, so I’ve got to admit that I do enjoy this one.

DocJitsu (1688) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a quickly evaporating yellow-white head. Vanilla aroma up front competing with wheat malt. A very light body with nice, but more carbonation than is usual for this style. I was concerned vanilla would be too powerful as evidenced by the aroma. Very nicely balanced as it turns out. Easy to drink and pleasant overall.

GMCC2181 (1591) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Golden color with a small head. Nice nose. Wheaty and vanilla, duh? Taste pretty much the same, nice intial wheat based beer followed by a sweet vanilla taste. Body is simple and clean. Very light and refreshing. Good stuff

Growler sample thanks to brew3crew. Pours a hazy golden yellow colr with a medium sized white head. The aroma has pale malts, sweet vanilla, biscuits and some waffle cone. The flavor is waffle cone, sweet vanilla, light nuttiness, pale malts on a thin body. I like vanilla notes in bigger beers, but this is too soft to carry it very well.

bytemesis (6731) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap. Clear pale yellow, small white head, little lacing. Smells like vanilla soda; not much else going on. Taste is same, very sweet, no bitterness. Light body. Not my thing.

Tmoney99 (13469) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Growler sample shared by brew3crew. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex vanilla sweet aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium vanilla sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Not a great response to this.
